LOADER KNUCKLE BOOM CRANE 178
- ESSENTIAL model, over 17 Ton/Mt.
- essential in design, powerful in performance
- Robust arm system
- Simple and reliable
- Excellent operational safety
178 has the highest lifting range and top power-weight ratio combining advanced technology features for more performance.
Constant Control Link System. The cranes equipped with connecting rods on the articulations, with a constant lifting moment over the entire working arc, allow to 100% optimize the crane’s capacity in positions close to the maximum vertical.
Crane Monitoring system 1.0. Crane stability control system TES1-TES2, with safety control and overload control for medium-small cranes. Controls the crane in 4 work areas, and each zone can have custom lifting settings depending on the vehicle stability.
Crane Monitoring System 2.0. Crane stability control system TES2-TES3 with safety and overload controls and HPVE lifting speed management. Active control on 4-8 working areas according to the model and vehicle stability requirements.
High Speed Extension. Hydraulic system for reducing load losses and bottlenecks for the correct output sequence of the extensions by increasing the speed of 30%-60% thanks to the regenerative valve. Greater continuous performance thanks to lower fluid temperature.
Manual Lifting Stabilizers 1.0. Manual lifting of the crane legs. The manual lifting of the legs helps the operator adjust its extension manually without additional assistance from electronics or hydraulic controls.
Manual Lifting Stabilizers 2.0. Manual raising of the stabilizers facilitated by a compressed gas cylinder which assists the operator during the rotation of the jack. This system assists the operator with less effort in adjusting the legs.
Negative Boom System. The linkage on the articulation of the secondary boom permits the introduction of loads within restricted spaces. It enables the recovery of the deflection of the extension boom group due to the weight and the load raised on the extensions.
Radio Remote Control 3.0. Radio remote control with the electro-hydraulic actuator connected directly to the proportional control valve. The remote control allows operating the crane while continually monitoring the areas of operation.
Rotation Rack Pinion. The rotation system with rack and pinion is the best optimal solution for the most performative lifting capacity. It reduces the weights and the crane dimension for the most compact configuration.
Transport Alert Device. Sensors on the basement controls the correct closing of the beams, and a column switch sensor indicates the crane folded position, no more than 4 mt in height. The operator is warned with light and sound signals in the truck cabin.
Truck Electronic Stability 2.0. Active stability control for performance optimization according to the type of stabilization to guarantee maximum safety in all working conditions. Mandatory in the CE market, it helps a better vehicle-crane configuration.
Winch Linear Control. The winch linear electronic control allows pulling the rope according to the working angle of the crane and the JIB. It optimizes load control and makes every movement easier and safer.
